Wines / Quails' Gate / Dry Riesling

Dry Riesling

Silver Medal National Wine Awards of Canada

A Quails’ Gate classic, this wine is crisp, dry and refreshing with wonderfully balanced acidity. Avid Riesling lovers will appreciate its cellaring potential that allow the acids to soften and the flavours to integrate.

Tasting & Pairing

Aromas of peach blossom, apple, pear and lime leap out of the glass. The palate is vibrant and tangy with refreshing acidity and lively notes of orchard fruit and citrus, leading to a long, mineral finish. Enjoy this wine with chicken piccata, fresh summer salads with citrus vinaigrette, ceviche and sushi.

Winemaking

The grapes were hand-harvested in the last week of October from two of our most established Riesling plantings. The majority of the fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks, however, 15% was fermented in barrel to add mid-palate structure and depth to the finished wine. Enjoy now through 2023.
